Pros:The hostel is quite large and has a variety of room accommodations. It was well run with places to store bags on check in and check out. My favorite part about this place was the location. It was near the museum train stop which made getting to other parts of the city a 5 minute train ride or a 20 minute walk. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the heater worked well.
Cons:The heater was very strong and I was very dry throughout the night. I recommend a lower bunk in the winter to avoid the dry air from the heater.
